EMIRI - The Energy Materials Industrial Research Initiative, set up in 2012, is driving forward research and innovation in the advanced materials for low-carbon energy applications. Innovative energy technologies are required to cost-effectively meet Europe's energy and climate change challenges. These technologies will be enabled by the introduction of new, advanced materials.
By bringing together research, industry and trade organisations, and leveraging Europe's world-class capability in advanced materials, EMIRI aims to contribute to generating tangible growth in economic value and employment opportunities for Europe.
EMIRI in a nutshell
- Its members (industry, research, associations) represent more than 4 billion euro of sales of Advanced Materials for low carbon energy, invest annually more than 400 million euro in Research & Innovation and mobilize thousands of researchers
- EMIRI contributes to Industrial Leadership of developers, producers & key users of Advanced Materials for low carbon energy by shaping an industry-friendly innovation-oriented EU policy framework based on SET Plan
- EMIRI is a catalyst in ensuring that public private interactions are reinforced and public innovation programs do contribute to protecting & reinforcing the industrial sector of Advanced Materials for low carbon energy
